Bedrooms Need Privacy
The words bedroom and privacy go hand in hand. Your bedroom is your sanctum and where you can be your most vulnerable. It is where you retire for the night after a long day of toiling and hard work. It is where you spend quite moments with your family members. Feeling yourself exposed or being under prying eyes is the least desirable thing you could want for your bedroom. You will always be conscious and uneasy if you feel that your bedroom privacy is at stake. Living with a lack of privacy in one’s own bedroom can be unsettling and take a toll on your physical and mental health.
Window Treatments for Privacy
Windows can majorly compromise your bedroom privacy if they are not effectively dressed and treated. Leaving your windows bare is the worst thing you can do and dressing them up flimsy sheer materials like lace can be equally bad. As evening approaches and lights are switched on inside the house these materials offer little resistance and outsiders can get a clear view of the insides of your bedroom and your activities. There are no dearth of peeping neighbors and prying eyes so you have to display caution when choosing window treatments for your bedrooms. They must be able to insulate your rooms, provide light blockage for a good sleep and above all protect your privacy.
Types of Window Treatments that Offer Privacy
Let us take a quick look at some of the window treatments you can opt for your bedrooms.
Zebra Sheer Dual Blackout Shades
This is one of the most functional pair of privacy shades that you will ever come across for your windows. They are perfect for your bedrooms as they give you complete control over light filtration, light blockage, privacy and insulation. These shades consist of a zebra sheer shade in the front which helps to block out harmful UV rays, cuts down the glares of the sun and allows diffused natural light to flow into your bedroom giving you the much needed natural light during the morning hours. There is a blackout roller shade at the back which helps to completely block out light when you are trying to catch sleep and after sundown, you can lower the blackout shades to protect the privacy of your bedrooms. This single shade takes care of all your needs.
Dual Solar Roller Shades
This is another brilliant shade for your bedrooms which addresses your privacy concern. The Dual Solar Roller Shades have two fabrics hung on the headrail. The lighter fabric filters the light, while the darker shade helps to absorb heat and block light. They cut out glare and the damaging UV rays that can be dangerous for your health and home. These shades give you ultimate light control and privacy. You can lower or raise either or both fabrics to meet your privacy requirements.
